How to prevent other sites from using bandwidth by using images

Post by jeniffer »

Last day I came to notice few sites on internet are using my images on their site by adding the image link from my site. Is there any option in cPanel to restrict linking of my images so that they won't steal my bandwidth?

Yes, it is possible to block other sites from linking your images. Log in to cPanel using the login details provided by your hosting provider.

Link to access cPanel : https://yourServerIP:2083

Click on "Hotlink Protection" under "Security"

Enable the hotlink protection. Refer the below url for more details :
